For the love of the Poor Crucified, and by His sacred stigmata which the blessed Father Francis bore in his body, Gal 6:17 I ask all those who read, see or hear these words, to remember me, a sinner, before God. Amen.

Blessing and honor Rv 5:13 and all praise
to the only wise God, Rom 16:27
Who always with great wisdom
works all things in all 1 Cor 12:6 to His glory.
Amen. Amen. Amen.

vita et doctrina mundum omnem gloriosissime innovavit, mentes diligentium nomen Domini semper dignetur supercaelestium charismatum novis imbribus irrigare.

2Obsecro propter amorem pauperis Crucifixi et per sacra stigmata eius, quae beatus pater Franciscus portavit in corpore suo, universos ista legentes, videntes et audientes, ut coram Deo mei meminerint peccatoris. Amen.

3Benedictio et honor et omnis laus sit
soli sapienti Deo,
qui ad gloriam suam semper
omnia in omnibus sapientissime operatur.
Amen. Amen. Amen.
